So if you're a nursing major or just inclined to muster up the courage to look at my face when it's black, blue, and quite swollen, here you go!
My blissful self with the most good-looking man in the world the week before the accident
The day after the accident (swelling had started to decrease and, if you look closely, you can start to see that my cheek bone was sunken in)
Night before surgery. I don't look too bad! And look at that black eye!
Here I am, the evening after surgery. Yeah, I have to agree, it looked worse after surgery than before! But my cheek bone is back in place, even if you can't tell because of all the swelling! That's why I have such a funny look on my face: the swelling kind of pushed my mouth over and it was hard to smile or do anything with my mouth.
Ok, so I have to admit, this is probably the most embarrassing, funny-looking picture of the whole bunch. The funny looking cap is holding the frozen peas against my cheek - I have to keep ice on it to help the swelling. And I was trying to smile but, um, yeah, the results were rather... grim.
